Speenhamland School

Primary LGB

The Board of Trustees have established Local Governing Bodies in accordance with the Articles of Association to assist with its responsibilities. The Primary LGB, who oversee Fir Tree and Speenhamland Primary schools, currently meet 5 times per academic year.

The LGB has delegated responsibility for:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of each Academy.
  • Holding the Academy Associate Headteacher to account for the educational performance of each academy and its pupils.

This is done through:

  • Curriculum planning and delivery (through the school development plans, self-evaluation forms, school targets and policy reviews).
  • Assessment and improvement (through monitoring and evaluating effectiveness of leadership and management, impact of quality of teaching on pupil progress and standards of achievement, continuing professional development and provision for all vulnerable groups).
